Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Terrible trimmer head The trimmer head is the most critical component of an edger, and the trimmer head here is terrible. You can not go more than a few feet before the line is heavily worn, and you have to flip the edger over and manually advance the line. Often the line just breaks. It's a very annoying and time consuming process. The trimmer head is not replaceable. Usually you can put a third party head of your choice on an edger. It's not possible here because there is no bolt to the spindle. This would otherwise be an awesome tool. The battery life is great, the motor is powerful, the edger is well balanced and feels right. But if an edger can not edge, it's a poor product. If you buy this you will be disappointed. February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best unit ever. I have been using this unit since last fall, it is now may 2014 andI love everything about the trimmer edger -, it works great with the foot pedal to go from trimmer to edger, my only problem is with the spools, they tend to jam and I must reset the line by hand, I hope that they resolve this issue - I purchase my spools at Home Depot and next time I go there I will complaine about this issue. I had a gas unit and I know that this unit is better and not noiset , the speed control is great - no matter the size of the grass or weeds it will cut them down - PS fix the spools and I will be a happy person.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Trimmer Head Issue Hated the gas trimmer and having to fool around with it to make it run. No more oil and gas to store. The edger works well and the unit is fairly easy to use however I have to stop every few minutes to manually advance the string. The automatic advance feature simply does not work. Is there another head I can put on the trimmer? With my old gas unit I was able to purchase and after market replacement head with heavier string. I have the mower, the blower and trimmer so I'm invested in the Ryobi 40V system. May 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Decent Trimmer Trimmer works pretty well. I switched the line from the 0.065 line that came with it to 0.080 line. The thinner line was wearing out faster than the line feed was supplying it. The line feed is activated by stopping the trimmer. So you have to stop it occasionally to feed line. August 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Quiet and Powerful, but the spool isn't the best. This is my 2nd 40V trimmer/edger. My first one was stolen, but they didn't take my battery and charger. My first one was running really good, but the spool for the string always get stuck after a while. It is supposed to be able to dispense the string every time you stop and start the motor, but it didn't. I had to stop and check the string and it very often get caught in between the winding. My 2nd unit had the same problem. Other than that, not a whole lot of complaints. The motor runs very quiet, no ear plugs needed, no fumes because it is electric, and the battery runs for a very long time(at least 90 minutes before you need to recharge). The 40V battery is a bit on the heavy side, so I wouldn't recommend this for people with weak arms. March 11, 2014
